Accepted into the Noise Singapore Apprenticeship 2008/2009 cohort, Nick got his first experiences as a young musician under the mentorship of veteran local singer-songwriter Kevin Mathews. Through Noise Singapore, he made many industry connections as well as opportunities to perform. Such opportunities included being featured artiste on both Power 98’s Acoustic Lounge Sessions with DJ Harry Corro, as well as the Originals Only Open Mic at the Singapore Art Museum. His foray as a recording artiste was marked by the release of his debut EP ‘Arranged Accidents’, which he recorded, produced and marketed himself. Distributed exclusively by Starbucks Singapore in May 2010, it was reviewed by local publications such as TODAY and the Business Times.
